Re: Bad things that happen at sea.

How many sailboats are lost...Does that really mean anything, unless you are selling insurance?

How do you weed out the different causes of loss? The folks who got caught in bad weather, or the folks who didn't have the sense to stay in, or the ones who never inspected a thru-hull? And how do you tell which ones just did something really stupid, like open a can of tuna fish and attract giant kraken, who will mercilessly attack when they smell tinned tuna?

Really, what's the point?
